east. peace process negotiations because so what we have on on one side is the u. s. president making this very controversial announcement and signing a very very controversial declaration a proclamation rather saying that the. the jerusalem from now on will be recognized by the u. s. government as the capital of israel at the same time the u. s. president shows this optimism that senior administration officials had already told us about. over the last few days they had told us that this president sees a positive peace an actual peace deal within reach on that he is optimistic a when it comes to those negotiations. but of course goes completely contrary to the view of almost every single experts on the matter and every single middle east leader

other than the israeli prime minister. benjamin netanyahu the other council members will move of course is the fact that the state department has now says that it is already starting the planning process. to put in place a new u. s. duration g received bodies around the world is as you just mentioned i don't act of from my arab states course in particular apple what about in the united states how will. this declaration is movie scene that. when we see it is all true controversial by of the u. s. congress. interestingly enough is the u. s. congress that mandates that the u. s. president has to sign a waiver every six months. four the u. s. embassy knots to be moved to jerusalem that has a law that this administration would like to change there is support for
2:34 pm
this move by the u. s. president. from republican certainly but from democrats as well indeed. presidential candidates have promised the very same thing on the campaign trail over the last few decades and when you listen to the statement from the us president. of course the foreign policy is important but when you look at the motivations as to where this came from there is one line only it is this one the u. s. president saying. i am delivering he believes that he is at keeping a campaign promise see promise that he would make jererusalem or otherer recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel and would move. the u. s. embassy that now the people who will be pleased with this announcement several members and of congress are not of donald trump voters who believe that he is keeping his promiseses. the evangelical christian rights
2:35 pm
as well. who believe that this is the right move and otherwise well not many other people and that includes quite a few members of the donald trump administration? officially you're hearing from the secretary state rex tillerson for example that he believes this is a brave move by the u. s. president. but i can tell you that quite a few. career diplomats in the state department would say e scolded a courageous and just decision but palestinian leaders say the move destroys the two state solution with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas accusing trum. of coming down firmly on israel's side in the conflict let's take a listen to the two of them advised seeking out is today. this is a historic day.

2:37 pm
some gracious years andnd is almost a mirror image but the other way the betrarayal i'm on. in the voice and in the face of mahmoud abbas the palestinian president he said before is he said that he wants that prime minister the story american president that he would no longer be at. and at trusted to be a broker in this situation and you could see that to in his face and in his voice. but when he was saying we don't needd a unilateteral decision to take out capitol from us. now you could players you could say that it it isn't eieither as goodod as the isisraeli. prime this things are as bad as the palestinian president thinks abe was wiggle room that that was a refeference from donald trump. to and recognizing j jerusalem as israel's capital but that they will be a negotiation and that it might not be he the same. in the same arrangements when i finally negotiate between the two parties themselves so that
2:38 pm
was we will room that you could say. joey from the israelis and rainy misery from the palestinians on the fan out because there is is that this world i've next right on the streets it wasn't so long ago we saw a very angry protests in jerusalem israel up it's a metal detectors. adversity aqsa mosque am i guess that is the immediate immediate fair for a lot of people right now. it is here. it's interesting i've been talking to palestinians and just two other journalist so no one can no one has a feeling now feels able to predict where this will go will it goes of that kind of. tension that we saw that really will it goes where it was. at that time with those. with through good holy sites or will it be something race because we don't know if there's the same feeling for this symbolic decision of the united states that there was. when it was really the al aqsa mosque when they really felt a mosque was under threat so we have to
